Reclaiming Detroit

With their city shrinking, many Detroiters use empty lots to grow gardens

The Greening of Detroit, one of the nonprofit groups that works with local growers, estimates there were more than 1,000 family, school and community gardens in the city in 2011.

The gardens operate as small, nonprofit, volunteer-based plots on which residents grow fruits and vegetables. In most cases, the food is donated to food banks, given away to neighborhoods or consumed by the growers themselves.
